    I have something very similar to this on the way... Will have Chorus and same controversial new logo, different wheels... (photo stolen from Cicli Corsa insta where the bike is ultimately coming from. The head guy there is great and he also is head of the Stelbel sales which is another bucketlist bike for sure...)

    Bit longer to wait unfortunately...

    Cicli Corsa just sent me these lovely build shots of my new Neo Primato. Looking at a week or so delivery from Italy to UK before I get my hands on it

    First ride impressions on the Neo Primato: Steel forks and Campy wheels are hard to beat.

    Fantastic-looking bicycle. A quality frame with Chorus and light wheels always works.

    I've always felt Chorus was Super Record with about 200 grams of common sense added, but to each their own...

    Wow that grey bike looks great!

    I made a few upgrades to my 80s Professional and thought I would share.
    New hand built wheels from Haldy in Seattle.
    Ambrosio Excellence with Campagnolo Record hubs.
    The wheels spin great and feel real solid and smooth.
    Planning a long ride tomorrow if the weather holds up.
    Added Chorus aero seat post and an old San Marco Professional saddle I had laying around.
    It looks legit.

    With the new shiny seatpost, I'd put the Cinelli silver stem back on. Like the both-black or both-silver combos, not crazy about one of each.

    Me being me, I'd probably try some gumwalls on that frame, too.

    IMO there's nothing like a nice vintage steel bike for just enjoying getting out for a ride. They're beautiful to look at and beautiful to ride.

    I'm loving the new wheels.
    So much fun whipping around the rolling hills here in Knoxville.
    Tubs.. no thanks. No plowing either.. I like to ride fast!
    Agreed on the gum walls.. the set I have are full of holes.
    I'll probably get some Veloflex Masters for this build..

    Don't fear a metaphor. Even a bad one.

    Nice machine, btw.

    This is when we should have stopped.

    Because the 2.3 kilos removed, and the 324% stiffness added did not make us faster, or happier.

    We were already fast.

    And happy.
